Recommended Aluminum Welder Socal?

I bought an S54 filter housing and decided to tap the rear vanos line for the conversion myself and it cracked the housing. Can anyone recommend a shop that can lay a quick aluminum bead? Our shop doesn't have equipment to do that. I'm in Orange/Anaheim

Wow! EAS doesn't have a tig welder!? That's just sad...

Welding aluminum that's been in contact with oil is never fun, hard to get all the oil out of metal and aluminum need to be super clean for a good weld.

Give it to Mason engineering. He could probably do it.
